Interestingly, while West Campus does not possess a central hub such a Jayhawk Blvd, all of the same variables were present for potential. As a result, surrounding

03 ACCESSIBLE HOME KANSAS CITY, KANSAS PROFESSOR FARHAN KARIM FALL 2019 The

premise of

this project is solely based on the concept of making a

home entirely accessible for a person bound to a wheelchair. design phase,

I

During

the

proposed the idea of making something largely inaccessible

and finding a way to make it perfectly accessible.

For

a person in a

wheelchair, immersing one’s self in nature is nearly impossible.

Thus

the

question was posed, how can nature be used as a motif within the form to entirely distort the lines between what is the home, and what is outside?

This Kansas City

home is comprised of three levels.

Level one being the Level one features the kitchen and living area as well as two bedrooms. Level two is dedicated to the child of the family. He will have a private bedroom, an on suite bathroom, and access to the rooftop and greenhouse. The connective element between the first and second floor is a large moving platform room. The hassle ground level and main level.

of navigating to an elevator is eliminated by converting the space most frequently visited, an office/ playroom, library, to also serve as a medium of transportation.

Since

being a low traffic area.

The

the second story is intended to house

only the child, the elevator is able to be a private office, due to it three levels combine to total

3084

sft.

There

are several cutouts within the structure to form intermediate

space.

Every room within the home contains curtain walls on the north and

courtyard spaces, to create the illusion of bringing the forest inside the south facades to bring in as much natural light and natural views as possible.

The

large skeletal frame surrounding the building serves several

purposes, denoted by its position relative to the house.

The

north

facade features a rooftop greenhouse and is framed by the structure.

The

structure is articulated throughout and transitions to the roof

for the second level as well as the south side, where there are solar panels to receive the most direct sunlight.

The

remaining areas will

be used as trellises to foster plant growth to further illustrate the

theme

of

synchrony

and

elements.

The narrative of this project is centered around a child with Cerebral Palsy in which mobility is limited. In contrast, the child enjoys nature and as a result the juxtaposition between accessibility and nature is spawned. Thus, nature was used a model.

04 RESURGENCE: COMMUNITY MOSQUE WHEATON, MARYLAND PROFESSOR FARHAN KARIM FALL 2019 This

is a not for profit community mosque and school community center,

Wheaton, Maryland. Muslim immigrants of the Wheaton Silver Springs area purchased two adjacent residential lots located near commercial hubs. The mosque and school will provide located in and

a communal identity to the heterogeneous immigrant population who from diverse cultural, linguistic, and economic backgrounds. Currently the school and the mosque are located at two adjacent plots. The mosque committee will demolish the current structures, merge the two plots, and construct a three story building in phases. came

The

defining parameters of the project was the consideration of

the direction of

Mecca,

as well as light modulation.

As

Qibla,

a result, the

form of the structure is very angular in response to the path of the

Qibla. The plot of land is parallel to the Veirs Mill Rd and Norris Dr. While the plot is arranged conveniently for circulation, it is not ideal for light modulation. The path of the sun travels at a path of forty-five degrees to the existing roads. Thus, the angle of the long cantilever of the second module, is angled at forty-five degrees to emulate the path of the sun. sun and the direction of existing major roadways,

Additionally,

the other factor considered when developing the form

of the mosque, is

Qibla,

the direction of the

Kaaba. The

main wall

within any prayer hall must stretch lengthwise perpendicular to the direction of

Qibla. With

the direction of

Qibla

lying perpendicular

to the existing roads, and the path of the sun circulating parallel to the roads, a rather angular structure was naturally formed.

IN COLLABORATION WITH KU DIRT WORKS STUDIO

Located

on the northern cusp of

Wells Overlook Park,

this picnic

pavilion structure provides a space of shelter and seclusion while still serving as a point of connection to the rest of the park.

This was a - build project among 17 dirt work studio members during the fall of 2020. The entirety of this project was designed among the Covid 19 pandemic, thus design collaboration was done exclusively online and remotely, while the project is scheduled to undergo construction at the start of the 2021 semester. design

As a conjunction of two main grids, The Polaris Pavilion rests at the northern half of the Wells Ridge Forest. Visitors coming to the site from the parking lot or from Wells Ridge Trail join under two pods that provide two different scales of intimacy. The North pod is narrower, with an adjacent garden to the east and one picnic table, so as to gently welcome visitors and be a space of quiet response. Wells Ridge Trail bisects the two pods while still integrating them to the rest of the park. The South pod opens to Wells Forest and shelters two picnic tables. This second space still emphasizes intimacy with its screens, but its larger size suggests more of a connection to the site. As one journeys through, they are able to experience the design differently throughout multiple points along the journey.

4. TIMBER SCREEN: Nail laminated timber screen matches the same “ABB� pattern found in the cantilevering roof above. At the four corners of each pod HSS Beams with T-plates are

used to attach the screen to the roof and to provide enough lateral support. The arrangement of the screens provides a consistent rhythm while also giving visitors a parallax experience as their perspectives shift throughout the pavilion.

5. CUSTOM FURNITURE: The pavilion consists of three different picnic areas. One under the northern pod, and two under the southern pod, all vary in size to provide different size groups with multiple public or private seating areas. Each

bench illustrates repetition established by the nail laminated roof and screens. Bench and table bases are made of precast concrete, while bench seats follow the nail laminated timber pattern. Each table was designed to be universally accessible from multiple sides.

6. STAMPED CONCRETE: The floor slab and sidewalk consist of broom swept concrete finishes, bisected by a central path following the cardinal grid. This path is stamped with timber to continue the incremental language of the timber element. As a continuation of Wells Overlook Ridge Trail, this walkway unites with the pavilion by adopting the visual rhythm of the roof. It articulated a difference in texture, thus signaling a new possible experience to visitors even those that could be potentially visually impaired.

72


1. NAIL LAMINATED TIMBER ROOF: Nail

laminated timber creates a continuation of materials found in the screen and benches, following an “ABB� pattern. The unique foot-print of the roof serves to frame our experience of the Polaris in multiple capacities. The angles that cut through the long horizontal roof members draw attention back to the two converging grids established within the pavilion. Canti-levers reach out past the screens over the benches and picnic tables creates either a more solitary experience on the outside of the screen or an interactive experience on the interior.

2. CUSTOM TRASHCAN: Located

along the main axis of circulation for convenient access and do not create visual distraction. Instead they are unified with the pavilion. Steel frames and wood slate directly relate to the repetitions and scales established within the screen, roof, and benches. Design intended for little maintenance.

3. STEEL PLAQUE: The

north-pointing axis becomes the concrete base to the western benches. As it rises from the plane of the sidewalk, a steel plaque pays homage to those who helped make the Polaris Pavilion a reality. Names of designers, supporters, and others who aided in its design are etched into the steel surface, while Dirt Works Studio logo has been water jetted to reveal the concrete axis below.
